Title: Unknown type of player. Any help is appreciated!
Post by: Necromancer on July 24, 2021, 11:51:12 PM
So I found a 'HiFi Music player|13th Dedicated music player' It was at a second hand store. It seems it isn't an original OS so I'm wondering what OS the Chinese company ripped off.  It's designed by some company named 'Tengsen'.
It's UI is as follows:
Music | Videos | Recorder
FM Radio | Ebooks (txt) | Tools
Browser | Settings | Bluetooth.
Not sure if it rings a bell.
Settings/system/player information says:
"Model:TengsenX3
Software version 2019-11-21"
Ring any bells? I doubt it's a new firmware, but rather a remasked version of another one. I just want to get rockbox working!
Sorry if this isn't the right area. I just couldn't figure out what it was. Any help is appreciated :)

Perhaps this would be the better forum: https://forums.rockbox.org/index.php/topic,21176.0.html

However, people are not likely to be going to do a Rockbox port for a random unknown device you found somewhere.

A Rockbox port takes a lot of time and dedication and is most likely to be done by someone who has a capable device to work on.

Common approaches are to take it apart and see what cpu it uses or to find a firmware update and look through the firmware to see what is in it. If there's nothing on Google I'd look into those steps.
